The library offers REDCap, a HIPAA compliant application to support data capture and
surveys for research; and partners with annual research day planning activities. Interdepartmentally,
the library works with the Division of Research and the Office of Diversity and Community
Relations to advance opportunities for community based student research and clerkship
The Library engages with STEM programs in schools and communities. The UPMC HealthChoices Health Education Advisory Committee seeks to advance health literacy efforts amongst
seniors and people with disabilities.
We also partner with annual research day planning activities. The Library recently
received NIH funding for patient education needs assessment research in community
healthcare centers, for promoting access to PCOM family care physicians via ridesharing
services and mitigating pandemic relief for students by delivering Internet access
via cost-free mobile hotspots.
